Actian PSQL Review

Great advanced structures like arrays, native json, etc. but would like to see default drivers in JVMworld

Valuable Features

Advanced structures like arrays, native json, etc.

Improvements to My Organization

We are using native json data type for statistics storage. Another way was to use something like MongoDB, but it would be too difficult to administer as we have too many other external products and services.

Room for Improvement

Default drivers in JVMworld

Previous Solutions

MySQL is too poor in functionality, Oracle is too big slow and the price is not quite good. We are using Azure SQL but we' d prefer MySQL instead - it is good for .Net but not for JVM.

Initial Setup

It's documented quite well, so there was no problems.

Implementation Team

Both in-house and vendor.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

$0 initialy and another $0 running it

Other Solutions Considered

MySQL only, as we already had experience with Oracle and MSSQL.
